Budding Ghanaian actress Victoria Lebene Mekpah who joined Ron Solomon Maxwell the eventual winner and Wisdom Sosu to represent Ghana at the Next Movie Star (NMS) Reality TV Show 2014 Reality Show in Nigeria is advising Ghanaians against bleaching.
She writes …
It’s sad how some Ghanaians both males and females resort to skin bleaching these days, worst of it is the desperation to become so light that they will use any product on the market that has “toning, lightening, whitening ” etc, not ensuring the real contents of the products, whether it’s their skin type, whether it can be used in our climate because some of these products damage the skin due to the chemicals and ingredients used, which don’t work well with the sun and irritates the skin.
All skin types are beautiful and we should love and learn to embrace it. If you want to make your skin glow and look appealing, there are healthier ways of getting it done by consulting an Aesthetician or Dermatologist before applying any cream to the skin.
I personally have had difficulties in choosing the appropriate product for my skin and have been a victim of the effects they come with, not until I confided in an expertly trained Dermatologist who advised and took me through a thorough skin care lecture.
I developed the passion to pursue skin care with Oasis Medspa which is one of Africa’s leading premium corrective skincare clinic and luxury day spa, dedicated to helping people achieve a flawless complexion.
My advice to Ghanaians is to let taking care of their skin in a healthier and hygienic way, be an “Addiction”.
